Forum: etree Subject: Re: waiting for metadata?

It looks like another of my uploads

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=20073

is stuck (and has been stuck, for the last four hours, even though the status gets updated every 10 minutes or so). (Actually, it seems like there are a whole bunch of uploads stuck in the "waiting for metadata" state.) I had no problems uploading or describing the files, so I don't know if there's anything I can do about it; can anybody help?

Thanks,
Brad

It seems that, about every 10 minutes, it changes state to "Initial stage: Verifying metadata, copying files, and verifying checksums", stays there for about 10 seconds, then goes back to the "No metadata describing files found. Waiting for user to enter metadata" state. Is it possible that the metadata files are somewhere on/in the system where the metadata verifier can't get at them?

Thanks,
Brad

I've recently fixed a couple of netlabel-related releases which had a similar problem in that somehow, the _files.xml wasn't getting written.

It's possible that your release is having a similar problem - I'll try to look at it, although this is really something that people such as Jon and Parker should be looking at, because they created the Contribution Engine - ie, I'm not so qualified to poke around in it!

[It's also possible that there's another, unrelated problem.]

Thanks. Would it be worthwhile to try doing an "Edit" on the upload and re-describe the files?

Aloha,
